Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitor's,
. . . are capable of storing, and discharging energy,
. . . very quickly and effectively.

Ultracapacitor's Work to harvest power from:

. . . . . . regenerative braking systems and release power to help hybrid buses accelerate.

. . . . . . blade pitch systems and to help increase reliability and stability to the energy grid.

. . . . . . Reliably crank semi-trucks in cold weather or when batteries are drained.

. . . . . . serve as energy storage in regenerative braking systems.

. . . . . . Capture energy and provide burst power to assist in lifting operations.

. . . . . . energy storage for firming the output of renewable installations and increasing grid stability.

. . . . . . regenerative braking systems and release power to assist in train acceleration.

According to the USA Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, of all Energy Generated in the USA,
. . . 1/3d is used, and
. . . 2/3d's is "Rejected."

I have been told, that a lot of the Rejected Energy, is thru "Heat" generated by conversion equipment.
. . . but, could Ultracapacitor's change things, so that we have a 50/50%, Useful to Rejected Ratio?
